"In 1995 I had $7 bucks in my pocket and knew two things: I’m broke as hell and one day I won’t be." – Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson
If you have ever played WWE cards (popularly known as trump cards), as a kid or even seen one of the WWE championship shows, you know The Rock since a long time now. At some point, you must have asked, "Do you know what The Rock is cooking?", while trying to raise your eyebrow fervently. He was ranked at the first position in WWE and after leaving wrestling he continued to stay in our hearts as Dwayne Johnson. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson turns 44 today. He has managed to achieve a lot in his lifetime. He is from a family of wrestlers but he first decided to use his athleticism for football, which also earned him a scholarship at The University of Miami. Unfortunately, due to a back injury, he lost his spot in NFL.
He did not let the incident faze him. He started training as a wrestler and made his debut in the year 1995 in the field of professional wrestling. His rise to popularity was quick but not at all effortless. After spending almost half a decade in wrestling, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson made his debut in the 2001 movie – The Mummy returns. Before that, he had appeared in the documentaries titled Longshot and Beyond the Mat. He was also the highest paid newbie when the movie The Scorpion King released. He has earned a special place in the people’s heart with his choice of movies and those WWE moves. Here are 5 reasons why we love Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
1. His smile makes our heart melt
His smile is super contagious and we smile every time he does on screen.
2. When he cuddled an elephant
That elephant is sure a lucky fellow.
3. He can surely take a joke
The man has proved that he can digest jokes directed at him and even make fun of himself.
4. He takes the expression "raised eyebrows" to the next level
Can you do that?
5. When he dressed up as Superman
We wouldn’t mind being saved by him.
